scott pelley is in new york. " " amount of salt let's check in for a look ahead it the "cbs evening news." >> scott pelley is in new york. >> great to be with you in san francisco. it was the announcement that no one on earth saw coming. benedict xvi becomes the first pope in six centuries to resign. alan pizzey is in vatky city for us tonight with a story on what happens next. we'll have that tonight on the "cbs evening news" at 5:30 right after kpix 5 news. shake up the amount of salt you eat and protect your heart and save your life. >> you only need to cut out the nine aniest amount out of your diet every day. dr. kim reports on just how
5:24 pm
easy that can be. >> reporter: arna has high blood pressure so tries to keep salt out of his diet but it's not easy. >> when i go to the supermarket i look at the package and the sodium. if it's high i don't buy it. >> reporter: packaged and restaurant foods are to blame for almost 80% of the salt in our diets. most people consume a teaspoon of salt a day. that's more than double the amount recommended. new research from uc-san francisco shows as many as half a million lives could be saved if americans reduce salt by 5% a year for 10 years. >> lowering sodium is really the goal that you want to have to lower blood pressure and then prevent strokes, renal disease, heart attacks. >> reporter: so here are five ways to reduce salt. first, do it yourself. stay away from prepared or processed foods. number 2, stick to fresh or frozen vegetables. these are zero salt. three, if you are buying canned
5:25 pm
veggies, get no salt added. or rinse under water. rinses removes 41% of salt from canned vegetables and a whopping 76% from canned tuna. four, if you stop at a deli, know before you go. salt adds up. let me show you how fast. salami and provolone with dijon versus turkey and swiss on a sourdough roll with yellow mustard. salami has over 2,000 milligrams of salt more than for a day. the turkey sandwich has half as much and that's before you add a pickle or chips. and one other thing to keep in mind. that dijon mustard, that has 120 milligrams of salt per teaspoon and there are tablespoons of salt on this sandwich. you can ask for less am finally, eat more potassium- rich foods. that's more fruits and vegetables and eat less sodium. dr. kim mulvihill, kpix 5.
